2003 nissan sentra gxe heater core


The problem is likely in your heater case doors, not the core itself. These doors are either vacuum operated or small motor operated.

Get the car warmed up, then feel both heater hoses. Both should be hot, meaning coolant is circulating. If only one is hot, the other cold, then you have a circulation problem.

1995 Nissan Sentra GXE Overheats (Temperature rises to near max, not spewing) only when at idle. The Radiator fan works (at least it spins) I swapped relays, too and still same problem. Both fans work...


are the upper and lower radiator hoses hot when car overheats? if so check for a clogged radiator or weak water pump. if one hose is hot and the other is cold or much cooler then replace the thermostat.

It you're losing coolant and it overheats, that's a sign of a bad head gasket. Get that checked before you spend any more time or money on anything else

Trying to locate the coolant temperture sensor on a 2003 nissan sentra gxe


Engine coolant temp sensor should be on the drivers side of the engine block. Follow your top radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block. near that you should see a sensor (it has a clip on it where the wires attach).

No heat ..help installed new heater switch, replaced water pump..replaced coolants, and thermostat......................what else could it be? Nissan 2003 GXE Sentra 1.8 L Engine/...


you could have an air pocket in the cooling system that has to be burped. With a cold engine, park uphill and leave the radiator cap loose. Fill radiator and coolant reservoir. Start engine with cap loose and run at 1500 rpm until temp gauge reads normal. Feel if top radiator return hose from engine to radiator is hot. If yes, coolant is flowing and thermostat is open. If cold, thermostat is not staying closed until engine is hot.

report results.

Heater blowing cold air


My 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8s with 55,000 mi. blows cold air from the heater. Coolant not circulating in engine. Lower hose stays cool to touch. Both heater hoses cold. Changed thermostat - didn't fix it. Coolant not leaking or dirty. None in oil - no oil in radiator. Changed worn water pump belt - pump spins freely with no noise or resistance. Cooling fans come on after warm-up. Temperature gauge stays in normal range then jumps to hot and back again. Coolant good to 10 below - didn't freeze here yet. No other problems or repairs to car. Afraid to drive and make worse. Help!

2003 Nissan Sentra Problem overheating and heater doesn't work.


does the car overheat at idle or travelling down the road? if the thermostat was not changed, thats first step. checking it is replacing it. possibly air-bound. then i would suspect a headgasket problem.
